    from some shots i've seen of his racquet, does he use power pads? like the leather pieces in the bottom grommets?

    actually, i doubt that there is a real PS 6.0 90 paintjob. because that would be a waste of paint. since fed started using the tour 90 paintjob anyways. because his racquet before that was a hps 6.1 i think.

    lol.... im thinkin too hard.

    FYI, Federer NEVER used a HPS 6.1. He did use a HPS 6.0 95 Tour paintjob for a short period of time, though. Who knows what was really underneath though. Most likely his usual PS 6.0 90.

    well, he used a 6.0 85 p.s. to beat sampras at wimbledon, with no paintjob, so he did use that for a while FOR SURE.

    He grew up with the PS 85. I have a picture of him from 1992 with his 85. He used the 85 all the way until his Wilson sponsorship when they started making ps90's for him. Those are ps85s with 90in heads but the exact same construction and feel of the 85, just a slightly larger sweetspot.

    Has someone been in a coma for the past decade? Sonne has resurrected 3 threads, if not more, from 2004. Perhaps this person is from the Santa Cruz, CA area. Many around that part of Calif, like to live/stay in their favorite decade.

    This forum would benefit from a good moderator more than any other I visit. There are probably 10 threads on Federer's racquet on the first page, half from years ago. There should be one thread for everything to do with the new stick. It's getting embarrassing, not to mention time consuming to find the actual good information that some posters are able to provide.

    It is still a gentlemen's game. Now, in the current era we may not have many gentlemen left on the tour. That perhaps shows where we are as a society.

    It is sad though with peopl like you trying to justify the existing behavior by actually branding tennis what it is not.

    To only see a person's skills and somehow relate it to "probable class" or condemn others merely game styles rather then achievement or contributions to the game and society as a whole is sad. Not to mention disillusion hypocrisy and myopic prejudice.

    Is Fed or Stan any more a "gentleman" then Nadal or Novak? If you have no quantitative or qualitative way to measure or prove it other then your own unique and closed minded scale then it's nothing more then hogwash or worse a caste system.

    No fists pumps, no chest bumps no "savage" displays lol! Please, even Fed has more common sense then to buy into your idea of 'gentleman's" game.

    Players who I'm biased against are those who are poor example to kids, who have no respect for the game, their fellow players or fans.

    Is Fed still using his standard string set-up(Champions Choice gut/poly) in the new racquet?
